I need a new rear tire for the LT. I'm trying to understand the difference between the following:

METZELER 160/70B-17 M/C 79V ME880 $209.95 (per Metzler website, 79V has a load rating of 963 lbs)

TIRE ME880 160/70B-17 V-T
0308-0022 $220.95

ME880 160/70VB17 RR ( recommended by BMW dealers, but why?)
110-10448 $313.95

I've tried Metzler's website but must be missing something!

Joe,

METZELER 160/70B-17 M/C 79V ME880 is the reinforced tire I have always been supplied with from all the dealers I purchased a tire from. Who quoted that price ?
Sounds like a good deal as I'm now paying about $250 a copy and go through three a year.

Phil

Joe SWMOTO has the same part number as the dealer for $199.95
BTW that is the same part number I've ordered many times for LT's
